This was a lovely big playground with loads to choose from, on arrival Xavier darted straight to the large tunnel slide which I wasn’t to keen on.
When we approached the slide a lovely caring mum advised that there was a hole at the top and to be careful? Be careful I thought, I’m not making reference to it and hopefully he wont notice..There was different climbing apparatus, plus the added bonus of a zip wire (it was a bit hard for Xavier is didn’t have much spring to pull down and jump on.
They have a lovely brightly colored gazebo incase you get caught out in the rain.
Xavier experienced a different type of swing at this playground and enjoyed a little ride before needing to come off.
There is a large sand play area gated with the entrance from the main playground..
This area consist of many seating options, wooden play houses.
Xavier loved playing on the wooden train and fire engine.
This playground has rolled out special touches with the wooden nappy change area and games table.
“I love, love, love this playground, please can we come back tomorrow?” Maybe (That’s not going to happen, maybe during the summer).
